The Bengals may not be letting on to the seriousness of Jeremy Hill’s shoulder/chest injury.

The Bengals are getting back to work today to prepare for a tough contest against the New England Patriots in Foxborough.

As the media entered the locker room this morning, WLWT's Elise Jesse spotted Jeremy Hill wearing a sling on his left arm.

Hill injured his chest/shoulder in the Bengals’ Week 4 win over the Dolphins and was limited in practice leading up to the Cowboys game. During the game in Dallas he was limited throughout and didn’t start, potentially due to the injury. Hill then fell on the football when making a play, and appeared to be in serious pain. He left the game and was ruled questionable to return with a chest injury. The injury has since been referred to as both a shoulder and chest injury.

Earlier this week, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said he expects Hill to practice this week and that he should be good to go for Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

"It's not serious, but he did land on a sore spot. He'll be ready to go on Wednesday," Lewis said via ESPN.

The Bengals will practice later this afternoon, at which point we’ll get a better sense of whether Lewis was telling the truth when he said Hill would practice today.
